AC Milan have three Chelsea players among their leading targets for the summer transfer window.
Sky in Italy report that Olivier Giroud’s agent has already agreed a two-year deal for the striker at the San Siro, worth 3.5m euros per season plus bonuses.
And attacking midfielder Hakim Ziyech, who has only been with Chelsea for a year, is one of two other Blues players in Milan’s sights.
Ziyech is understood to be the top target to replace Hakan Calhanoglu, the Turkey international who joined fierce rivals Inter earlier this week on a free transfer.
Milan have other significant names in mind for that role, including former Leicester loanee Cengiz Under, Atletico Madrid’s Thomas Lemar and also Everton’s James Rodriguez.
To complete the hat-trick, Milan could also turn to a player who they previously had on loan from Chelsea – defensive midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko.
